An obituary for Gregory Bo Archibeque received several web comments this week. The Gypsum man and Eagle Valley High School graduate was 20 years when he died a week ago today. Those posting comments addressed their words to Archibeque’s parents, Tom and Angela.

Tom and Angie, I can’t express the sorrow I have for you and yours. I’m so sorry. Bo is a gift from God. My prayers are with you and your families.I’m so sorry. Tom

Dear Tom and Angela,

May God be with you during your time of loss. Trust in him and lean not on your own understanding at this time. You all will be in my prayers and the prayers of those in my church. Bo was a great kid and will be remembered and missed by all who knew him.

Be strong and of good courage.

I love you guys.


I am very sorry for your loss. May your memories bring you strength and comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

We are so sorry for the loss of your son. Although I only knew him as a little boy, I’m sure he grew into a fine young man, and will be dearly missed by all those that were blessed to have known him. I heard a saying from a woman who lost her son as well. She said what helped her through the pain was that she kept telling herself “Never loss always gain,” in other words, it will never be a loss only a gain to have been his parent.


Our editorial praising the new Edwards spraypark drew the ire of one web commenters. Here’s what was posted to the editorial, titled “Spectacular spraypark”:

What a phenomenal waste of water in a place where it is usually precious. Saying that it is as good a waste as dumping water on a golf course is as ignorant as people would expect from your editorial board. That is like saying throwing money out the window along I-70 is just as good an idea as doing it on Highway 6.

Gee, big surprise that Stone is the genius behind this move. Another great Republican legacy.


Another commenter noted that the Edwards spraypark isn’t even an original idea. Sprayparks in other parts of the country have had some more creative uses, too.

Aspen’s had a similar feature for at least 20 years ” the police used to wash their cars by driving over it until this was banned by the city council 🙂
